In January and February of 2022, I was fortunate enough to join the GWR Longest Running Live Comedy Show, NewsRevue at the Canal Cafe.
This current affairs parody song and sketch show is acknowledged as a “rite of passage for all comedy newcomers” (Chortle). Alumni include The League of Gentlemen, Sarah Pascoe, Bill Bailey, Saskia Reeves and Michelle Collins. The cast members, described as having “Herculean levels of talent” (WhatsOnStage.com), together with an on-stage musical director receive 5-star reviews at Edinburgh Fringe Festival every year.
Masochistically popular amongst politicians, you may see an MP in the audience! A fast-moving mix of sketches and songs, NewsRevue propels you through the world’s news and current events at breakneck pace — all-kicking, idol-burning comedy, with brand new content injected into the show weekly by a crack team of writers and cast alike.
